Significant occurrences during his presidency include the construction of the library, increases in seminary finances, and a continued dedication to the selection and expansion of the faculty. Upon his retirement in 1971, the APTS Alumni Association created the David L. Stitt Fellowship for seniors and renamed the campus library in his honor.
